Abu Dhabi’s pedestrian tunnels and footbridges go LED

Abu Dhabi’s 35 pedestrian tunnels are currently undergoing full LED upgrades, set to reduce energy use by a massive 80 per cent.

Six underpasses had their lighting upgraded this year, and Abu Dhabi Municipality is now rolling out the remaining upgrades, including pedestrian footbridges, in phases.

‘Generally the changes achieve energy savings of 80 per cent and increase the lighting levels, colour rendering and uniformity,’ said Martin Valentine, lighting expert at the municipality.

Valentine added that the upgrades to the tunnels and footbridges are just a small part of the overall lighting upgrades to the city and suburbs.  

‘This includes all the streets and parks as part of an ongoing five-year programme,’ Valentine told Lux.

Ahmed Al Sayaari of Abu Dhabi municipality told The National: ‘The new system is eco friendly due to the non-use of toxic and harmful substances during its manufacturing process.’

‘As a result, the reduction in energy consumption would minimise CO2 emissions and slash light pollution, rendering the new lighting system of an important environmental dimension.’

Since 2011, all public lighting projects in Abu Dhabi have been designed with LED or other energy-efficient light sources.

My names are Ashley Vivian, Am here to share a testimony on how Dr Raypower helped me. After 1/5 year relationship with my boyfriend, he changed suddenly and stopped contacting me regularly, he would come up with excuses of not seeing me all the time. He stopped answering my calls and my sms and he stopped seeing me regularly. I then started catching him with different girls several times but every time he would say that he love me and that he needed some time to think about our relationship. But cannot stop thinking about him so i decided to go online and i saw so many good talk about this spell caster called Dr Raypower and i contact him and explain my problems to him. He cast a love spell for me which i use and after 24 hours, my boyfriend came back to me and started contacting me regularly and we moved in together after a few months and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than his friends. We eventually got married and we now have been married happily for 3 years with a son. Ever since Dr Raypower helped me, my partner is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before.You can also contact this spell caster and get your relationship fix Email: Urgentspellcast@gmail.com or Urgentspellcast@yahoo.com see more reviews about him on his website: http://urgentspellcast.website2.me Call or WhatsApp: +1 (424) 330-8109 also view his blog: https://urgentpowerfullovespell.blogspot.com/
